A signature program of the Illuminating Engineering Society New York City Section (IESNYC), the IESNYC Student Lighting Competition (SLC)recently announced the winners of the 2019 competition held on March 5 at 4W43. The event was an opportunity for the lighting and design community to see installations created by the next generation of lighting designers.

This year’s theme – Light & Culture – challenged students to design and construct a three-dimensional study that explores the role light plays in their home culture or that of their adopted one. More than 100 students or teams of students exhibited their work for more than 400 attendees.

Grand Prize Winner

Ghost Town
Jialun Cao – Pratt Institute – Scott Lundberg (instructor)

Ghost Town is dedicated to the memory of the craftspeople and beautiful old times they left behind in a Chinese village of Jingdezhen in southeastern China. Ceramic rice bowls, which the town is known for are cracked and illuminated. Glow sticks illuminate linen screens. The jury commented that the installation has emotional impact with broken pieces of ceramics and soft fabric, resulting in an unusual unexpected source of color and light.

Second Place Winner
Layered
Andrea Young Fierro, Karmen Ho, Suji Lee – Parsons New School for Design – Derek Porter (instructor)

The relationship to different cultures and humanity is a layered experience. Viewing through the shadowed apertures at different angles allows the observer to see the layered personalities symbolic of unique and diverse cultures and find alignments and similarities as the observer meanders through the layers, revelations come to light. The jury added that the project is a beautiful piece of artwork, sophisticated and seductive with multiple layers.

Third Place Winner
Spark of Joy
Simy Bentata Singer – Pratt Institute – Willy Schwenzfeier (instructor)

This installation expresses how we all live deepened into our own lives, wanderings and beliefs. But in a dark night of a special day, we converge in the same spot of the same sky, see the same sparks of joy, for nothing less than commemorating life. The jury added that it is very meditational and tempting to play with and since it is biophilic, it connects humans with nature.

There were also several honorable mentions. Congratulations to all the winners!
